Was not sure what to expect with this film as I am not a big sci fi person, but a friend suggested we go so I figured why not? Besides, I love Alanis Morriset and was curious about her as an actor.
Found a great (if somewhat unknown) cast and a really interesting story ! Strong acting and a really interesting story. I had never read any of the books but now want to try some. My friend who is a huge PKD fan said it was true to the book and he loved it ! We had some great conversations about it afterwards and a week later I am still thinking of parts. Highly recommend it for both fans of the genre as well as neophytes! Not your usual big budget canned film - great script and story!
